Who?

By Neal Morrison Jr, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By Neal C. Morrison, Jr.
VA Medical Center--Hampton, VA


Who should care
about what is said behind their backs?
Who should give power to a coward?
Who should care about the foolish?
Who should give a helping hand to those
who don't want it?
Who should care about those
who don't care about themselves?
Who wants to waste time with people
who don't care or respect you?
Who wants to love those
who want to use you and abuse you?
Who wants to be treated like an ATM machine?
The only time you are contacted
is when something is wanted.
Who wants to be treated like a punching bag?
Who wants anger and frustration
taken out on them?
Who wants to be falsely accused
of things they have not done?
Who, Who, Who?
I'm beginning to sound like that wise old owl.
Therefore, I asked the question, "Who?"
When you're told, "It’s not you, it's me,"
Who wants to hear that?
When you're told, "I don't know what I want,"
Who wants to hear that?
Who wants to be rejected and disrespected?
Who wants to love, not receiving love in return?
Who wants to live
life when no one cares about them?
I wonder who?
Is there anyone out there
who really cares?
Who?
